About Us

About PGIO Mission of Mercy

Protect a girls image mission of mercy is a powerhouse for advocacy in fighting homelessness, awareness of mental health and mental illness and ending injustices that cause poverty.

We are community organizers who facilitate the lives of families and low-income workers affected by homelessness.

We are dedicated to putting vulnerable persons into shelters, safe houses and transitional homes.

We connect them to counselling, substance abuse treatment, and mental health services.


Working towards ending homelessness by connecting the homeless with existing services, providing materials, and economic and employment opportunities  on the local level  so people can work towards self-sufficiency.


Giving hope and promoting dignity for immigrants affected by homelessness through access to community support and comprehensive quality care.


The US welcomes millions of immigrants from all over the world. Experiencing a new country can be very distressing due to cultural stigma and being away from their loved ones.

Transitioning to a new culture involves a range of challenging issues including acculturation, barriers to financial success and prejudices. There is a confirmed rate of undiagnosed and untreated mental health problems among African immigrants to the U.S. The most common mental health illnesses include: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, PTSD and bipolar disorder. But there are little or no mental health care services for immigrants of color.

We are working towards the better understanding of the obstacles and opportunities for providing better accessibility to effective mental health care services and treatments. We depend on a strong proffessional force that works directly with the homeless and other community public health partnerships for African immigrantsorganizations that provide the needed services.
